The big question
The answer is neither.
Gotta be high voltage festival with Dream Theater, queensryche, tull, thunder, michael schenker group etc etc
Yippie kiyay !!!?
I agree the answer is neither. Sonisphere, Knebworth i'm afraid as the mighty Motorhead are playing there. Leeds and Reading are too indie and tame.
Yep im going to High Voltage :)I went last year, really enjoyed it
Hop Farm Festival is the one for me this year! Well the Friday isn't up to much but the Saturday is fantastic, Morrissey, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop etc...and I went last year and it was a great festival not too big and not full of the morons who go to festivals like Leeds, it had a nice vibe...Leeds has a few bands worth seeing but it's full of adolescent morons and £190 is way too steep...and the sound is always terrible, as for V festival I think the headliners (bar Arctic Monkeys who're acceptable) will put the majority of people with brains off...there's my input! What are other people doing if you're going to a festival at all?
download for me, others are too poppy for my liking
Leeds/Reading and V have as 'Face it!' posted have become more of a status festival for middle class 'oppressed' teens who hate their parents soooo much that they will happily let them pay a fortune for a weekend ticket for them to go and act like a complete knob in the middle of a field .........
oh well better them there than at a real bands gig lol
@ Best of Foo - "Leeds/Reading and V have as 'Face it!' posted have become more of a status festival for middle class 'oppressed' teens who hate their parents soooo much that they will happily let them pay a fortune for a weekend ticket for them to go and act like a complete knob in the middle of a field ......... "Hiya! Although thats not too say I don't appreciate good music! Oh and im paying for my ticket, my parents wouldn't dream of wasting that money on me!:P
I totally agree with Best Of Foo. I went to Leeds a couple of years back and was horrified by the clientele in attendance. Stupid middle class morons away from Mummy and Daddy for the first time. Festivals are too commercialised these days. Monsters Of Rock at Donnington eighties and early nineties. Proper festival, proper rockers and no middle class snotty englanders in sight.
I suppose being only 21 I can't actually make such comments about the 'adolescent morons' as I kindly put it who go to Leeds and other similar festivals, however I place myself massively outside of that category of cunts...what lovely alliteration. Going to Hop Farm in Kent last year just made me realise how much better a festival can be than Leeds...it gets the bands but the vibe at Hop Farm was so much more...relaxed I suppose, and people seemed to be there for the music rather than a weekend they use as time away from parents...using it likes its international waters and going 'mental'. Makes me sound like a bore but I'm sure you know what I mean if you've attended such festivals..
Can I just say that even though im a student and going to leeds festival, I am not a 'middle-class moron' and im not away from 'mummy and daddy' for the first time, and neither are lot of people who go to festivals, sure there are a few stupid arses who have plans of just getting s***-faced all weekend, but many others just want to have a good time with there friends and enjoy some bands. I am not musically inept and appreciate a lot of very different music genres, and would go to every festival out there I had the money!
Good for you Chipps.
Not so sure you're right there Chipps - about going to every fezzie that is - anyone else here have memories of Deeply Vale as was?
Neither for me too - Glastonbury every time!! Would LOVE it if they could get Deeply Vale going again though...
